<package name="media-libs/xine-lib" auto="yes" arch="x86">

<background>
<p>
xine-lib is the core library package for the xine media player.
</p>
</background>
<description>
<p>
xine-lib does not check boundaries on data being read into buffers from
DMO video files in code that is shared with MPlayer
(DMO_VideoDecoder.c).
</p>
</description>
<impact type="normal">
<p>
An attacker could entice a user to play a specially crafted DMO video
file with a player using xine-lib, potentially resulting in the
execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the
player.
</p>
</impact>
<workaround>
<p>
There is no known workaround at this time.
</p>
</workaround>
<resolution>
<p>
All xine-lib users on the x86 platform should upgrade to the latest
version:
</p>
<code>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=media-libs/xine-lib-1.1.4-r2&quot;</code>
</resolution>
